On the Development of the Emojiplanet Slot
This is what Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, had to say about the development of the emoji-themed slot:
"As a leader in both mobile online gaming and innovation, emojis are a perfect fit with NetEnt. Every day, millions – if not billions – of people around the world enjoy using emojis. They have become a language in their own right; it is hard to think of a more collectively familiar and loved brand to partner up with."
“Emojis are a perfect fit with NetEnt.”
Additionally, Jens Drinkwater, Licensing Manager at Global Merchandising Services Ltd, stated: “We are tremendously excited to bring the colorful and exciting world from The emoji Company to the gaming community. We are sure that the Emojiplanet game will be a fantastic success for players of all ages."
